The Voluntary Sector in the UK has limited funds and every penny counts. In order to make money go that little bit further, Telford & Wrekin Volunteer Centre in the UK, have set up a Facebook page inviting bargain spotters to let them know if they spot a bargain that could be of use to charities and community groups within their area. This could include anything – from a buy one get one free bumper jar of coffee, to a great deal on reams of A4 paper, printing of leaflets, stationery supplies etc etc.
It is hoped it will reduce expenditure for the voluntary sector and therefore support sustainability, whilst also generating interest in local charities and the challenges they face to keep their heads above water in the current economic climate.
If you know of a bargain, then please contribute your knowledge to their Facebook timeline.
